The hit Pina Records single "Criminal" by Natti Natasha and Ozuna is now the #1 music video in the world, according to the just-released YouTube Music Global Top 100 chart for the week ending 11/9. The video finished comfortably ahead of mega-hit "Despacito" by Luis Fonsi ft. Daddy Yankee and "Havana" by Camila Cabello ft. Young Thug, with nearly 70 million plays recorded for the week. "Criminal" is in heavy rotation on the multi-platform VidaPrimo network and has now surpassed 600 million lifetime views.
"We are incredibly happy for Natti Natasha, Ozuna and our client Pina Records for achieving the #1 music video," says VidaPrimo Executive Vice President and General Manager Stephen Brooks. "It is an honor to work with some of the best artists and label executives in the world. Pina Records has been a pioneer in the Latin Urban music genres of Reggaeton and Latin Trap for over a decade, and "Criminal" is a testament to the label's continuing status at the top of its game."
The achievement also acknowledges YouTube's role as barometer of global music trends. The video platform's Top 100 charts track weekly viewership and fastest growth of music videos in the United States, United Kingdom and Worldwide. "YouTube plays a vital part of the music ecosystem for us," says Brooks. "The Top 100 Charts provide a unique and important view into the music video marketplace."
